I second Scott's comments. The factory uses Bilstein's and these are remarkably durable, well-made shocks. Like you, I'm still conditioned to think factory shocks are probably shot at <50,000 miles (thanks to the cheap ones used by American auto manufacturers); definitely NOT true for our cars, however.

If you DO have a leaking shock, replace both shocks on that end of the car and use Bilsteins.
